  2. NEWS RELEASE - VILLAGE OF RED HOOK OCTOBER 15, 2020 TOPIC: A SAFE HALLOWEEN IN 2020 THIS YEAR THE VILLAGE HAS POSTPONED ITS ANNUAL RED HOOK HALLOWEEN EVENT AS WELL AS IT’S CHILI CONTEST, COSTUME PARADE AND KIDS CRAFTS DUE TO COVID19 CONSIDERATIONS…PLAN ON IT HAPPENING AGAIN IN 2021. LOOKING AT THE CALENDAR FOR 2020 YOU’LL NOTICE HALLOWEEN IS A SATURDAY THIS YEAR WHICH NORMALLY WOULD BE A GREAT DAY TO TRICK OR TREAT ON THE VILLAGE STREETS AND SHOW OFF COSTUMES…BUT HEALTH AND SAFETY REMAIN AN ISSUE. THE VILLAGE FOLLOWS THE GUIDELINES ESTABLISHED BY EXPERTS AT THE CENTER FOR DISEASE CONTROL (CDC) AND NEW YORK STATE’S DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH. WE POINT OUT THAT THE CDC GUIDANCE INDICATES THAT OUTDOOR TRICK OR TREATING CREATES A HIGHER LEVEL RISK OF COVID19 INFECTION. BUT, IT ALSO OFFERS ALTERNATIVE IDEAS. WE’RE ATTACHING A LINK TO THE CDC – https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/daily-life-coping/holidays.html#halloween THIS ILLUSTRATES SAFER ACTIVITIES AND MOST INVOLVE FAMILY CELEBRATIONS IN OUTDOOR, BACKYARD TYPE SETTINGS; VIRTUAL COSTUME CONTESTS; BAKING SPECIAL TREATS. AT THIS POINT, WE ARE NOT GOING TO “BAN” TRICK OR TREATING BUT WE ASK THAT OUR RESIDENTS AND NEARBY TRICK OR TREATERS FOLLOW THE CDC INFO IF THEY DECIDE TO WALK AROUND THE VILLAGE. (MASKS, SOCIAL DISTANCING, SANITIZING) PLUS, WE ASK THAT THEY FULLY RESPECT OUR RESIDENTS OR BUSINESSES WHO CHOOSE NOT TO OFFER TREATS THIS YEAR. CROWDED FRONT PORCH INTERACTIONS OR LARGER IN-STORE GATHERINGS ARE NOT IN THE BEST HEALTH INTEREST OF OUR RESIDENTS OR SHOP OWNERS; OR THE CHILDREN. FAMILY AND FUN ARE IMPORTANT IN RED HOOK, AS IS THE STRENGTH OF OUR LOCAL SHOPS BUT THIS YEAR WE’LL HAVE TO WORK WITH THE NEW NORMAL. SO, DECORATE YOUR YARDS, HOMES OR SHOPS, HAVE FAMILY PARTIES BUT BE ADVISED THAT THINGS ARE DIFFERENT AND WE ALL NEED TO MAKE IT THROUGH THE INDOOR AND COOLER MONTHS AHEAD OF US. BE SAFE AND BE KIND – HAPPY HALLOWEEN – WE’RE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER. IF ANY GUIDANCE CHANGES OCCUR WE WILL FOLLOW THAT AND UPDATE OUR STANCE.

     REVERSO EN ESPANOL
     COMUNICADO DE NOTICIAS - PUEBLO DE RED HOOK 15 DE OCTUBRE DEL 2020 TEMA: UN HALLOWEEN SEGURO EN EL 2020 ESTE AÑO, EL PUEBLO HA POSPUESTO SU EVENTO ANUAL DE HALLOWEEN EN RED HOOK, ASÍ COMO EL CONCURSO DE CHILE, EL DESFILE DE DISFRACES Y LAS ARTESANÍAS PARA NIÑOS DEBIDO A LAS CONSIDERACIONES CON RESPECTO A COVID19 ... PLANEE QUE OCURRA DE NUEVO EN 2021. AL MIRAR EL CALENDARIO DEL 2020, SE DARÁ CUENTA QUE HALLOWEEN ES UN SÁBADO ESTE AÑO, LO CUAL NORMALMENTE SERÍA UN GRAN DÍA PARA PASEAR POR LAS CALLES DEL PUEBLO PIDIENDO DULCE O TRATO Y MOSTRAR LOS DISFRACES ... PERO LA SALUD Y LA SEGURIDAD SIGUEN SIENDO UN PROBLEMA. EL PUEBLO SIGUE LAS MEDIDAS ESTABLECIDAS POR EXPERTOS EN EL CENTRO DE CONTROL DE ENFERMEDADES (CDC) Y EL DEPARTAMENTO DE SALUD DEL ESTADO DE NUEVA YORK. SEÑALAMOS QUE LAS GUÍAS DEL CDC INDICAN QUE EL DULCE O TRATO AL AIRE LIBRE CREA UN NIVEL MÁS ALTO DE RIESGO DE INFECCIÓN POR COVID19. PERO, TAMBIÉN OFRECE IDEAS ALTERNATIVAS. ESTAMOS ADJUNTANDO UN ENLACE AL CDC - https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/daily-life-coping/holidays.html#halloween ESTO ILUSTRA ACTIVIDADES MÁS SEGURAS Y LA MAYORÍA INVOLUCRA CELEBRACIONES FAMILIARES EN AMBIENTES ABIERTOS COMO LOS PATIOS TRASEROS AL AIRE LIBRE; CONCURSOS DE DISFRACES VIRTUALES; PASTELES Y BOCADILLOS HORNEADOS. EN ESTE MOMENTO, NO VAMOS A "PROHIBIR" DULCE O TRATO, PERO SOLICITAMOS QUE NUESTROS RESIDENTES Y PARTICIPANTES CERCANOS SIGAN LA INFORMACIÓN DEL CDC SI DECIDEN CAMINAR POR EL PUEBLO. (MASCARILLAS, DISTANCIAMIENTO SOCIAL, DESINFECTANTES) ADEMÁS, PEDIMOS QUE RESPETEN TOTALMENTE A NUESTROS RESIDENTES O EMPRESAS QUE ELIJAN NO PARTICIPAR ESTE AÑO. LAS INTERACCIONES ENTRE MUCHA GENTE EN EL PORCHE DELANTERO O REUNIONES MÁS GRANDES EN LAS TIENDA NO SON LO MEJOR PARA LA SALUD DE NUESTROS RESIDENTES O PROPIETARIOS DE TIENDAS; O LOS NIÑOS. LA FAMILIA Y LA DIVERSIÓN SON IMPORTANTES EN RED HOOK, COMO TAMBIÉN LO ES LA FUERZA DE NUESTRAS TIENDAS LOCALES, PERO ESTE AÑO TENDREMOS QUE TRABAJAR CON ESTA NUEVA NORMALIDAD. ASÍ QUE, DECOREN SUS PATIOS, HOGARES O TIENDAS, TENGAN FIESTAS FAMILIARES, PERO TENGAN EN CUENTA QUE LAS COSAS SON DIFERENTES Y TODOS NECESITAMOS LOGRARLO A TRAVÉS DE LOS MESES ADENTRO Y CON MÁS FRÍO ANTE NOSOTROS. SEA SEGURO Y AMABLE - FELIZ HALLOWEEN - TODOS ESTAMOS JUNTOS. SI SE PRODUCE ALGÚN CAMBIO DE MEDIDAS, LO SEGUIREMOS Y ACTUALIZAREMOS NUESTRA POSTURA.
